I am sorry that the QP link wasn't working all weekend. I didn't even realize that until this morning but it is up and fixed now. I think with all the traffic from DSD, 4Shared got hungry and ate the file! But I reuploaded it and now you are all good to go!

Here is the new link... Bubblicious QP.

Lots of news and a Freebie or 2 !!!

Boy, where do I start! Well first off Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day! I would be alot more excited if I didn't have to work all day and miss all the fun activities. I tell you I am going to be over at Scrap Orchard as soon as I am home tonight and the kids are in bed! They have some fun things planned for all day and man oh man do I wish I could be there.

Lets see... I guess the first things is that my store at Scrapdish is on sale for the week at an amazing 50% off. I had to celebrate in style! Take a look here!

The next thing is that by now you all know that I am on Ellie Lash's CT. She has been my favorite designer from the moment I started digiscrapping and I am so honoured to be on her team. Anyway, today she is opening her new store, Studio Ellie at Scrapbook Graphics. We are all so proud of her and her wonderful work. In honour of that and with a wonderful new kit that she collaborated with Monica of MGL Scraps called Bubblicious we her Angels have made some QP's for you and are having a bit of a blog train of freebies. Here is one that I have made for you. Hope you like it and don't forget to follow the links to all the other pages too!

Download here!

And the rest of the links are here:

And last but definately not least, the Novemeber ADSD blog train of goodness. This month the theme was After Dusk and the inspiration was what do you do when night falls! Since mostly I am in bed or on the computer I thought that I might think about what I would do if I didn't have 2 little kids a husband and no social life! I though some bling and sparkle and some nice rich colors would be perfect for a wild night on the town! So here is my part and please follow the links to all of the other amazing pieces in this mega freebie blog train kit!

Long time No Blog... again!

Hello again everyone,
I know, it has been awhile again but this time I have a great excuse. I have started selling at a store! I am now at Scrapdish and am loving it there. Everyone has been super helpful and friendly. So I hope you all take minute to peruse what I have in the store and see if there is anything that you might like to buy! As a matter of fact I might just stick something at the end of this post for all of you faithful followers of this boring old blog... a bit of what is in one of my new kits... "Twilight", and no it doesn't have anything to do with the book!
So here are a few of my things that are in the store. I am working on filling it up but this is a start.
Twirly Whirly - This is one of my favorite kits yet. I love the soft colors in this one.



And as I promised, here is a quick page made with my new Twilight kit. And even better if you leave me a comment here on my blog, I will make a draw and one lucky reader will win the kit for free! You have until Sunday the 12th. Please leave me your email address so I can get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner.

Download here!

And don't forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win!

ADSD September Blog Train - Cornucopia of Colors

So for the past few months I have been working on my designing skills and the best place that I have found to do that was with the Aspiring DigiDesingers Group. Each month we do a great big freebie blog train kit for all of you that want it!

This month's theme was "Cornucopia of colors" I was very busy this month and didn't get to do a lot but here is what I came up with so far. I really liked the color scheme so I might just get more done during the month.

I have an element pack and a patterned paper pack for you all. Here are the previews and the download links. I would love to know what you thought of them so leave me a note!

Paper Pack

Bad Blogger but I'm back with a Freebie!

I kind of have been a bit lazy the last couple of weeks. I have had a lot going on around home and I haven't blogged in a while. But I am back now and I have a little freebie for you all! I have decided to apply to a store - I am just not sure where. The one that I wanted to join doesn't seem too interested so I think I have to shop around! So I made a full kit to show as my application kit and this is a little add on from that! If I find a store to sell in I will post the preview of the full kit then! Until then here is my Freebie for today:

Beachy Keen - Mini Kit Freebie

Hi there, I love the start of a new month because that brings all sorts of new scrappy challenges. Now that I am doing some designing there are even more challenges for me to try my hand at. One of the ones that I am really enjoying is the color challenge over at DSO. For that one this month I created a kit called Beachy Keen because I immediately thought of the beach when I saw these colors. I hope you like and and let me see anything that you create from it or anything else I have made!

Zoo Spirit Mega Freebie Blog Train Stops Here!

Hello Everyone!

Here is the next stop on the Zoo Spirit Mega Freebie Blog Train. I have some basic grungy papers, a few animals and some frames and elements for you. I purposefully kept mine fairly basic because there are so many other great designers out there who can draw animals or do all sorts of animal prints and I am not that great at that. I also thought that there might be some other people out there that are like me and have never been to a zoo! So you can use these to scrap other things as well! LOL !!!

Here are my previews:

A new page by me!

Although I have been working really hard on the designing I also am a big scrapper. I love it. It makes me happy. My latest page that really made me happy was one about my sister. She competes in Loggersports - or lumberjack competetions. She is super strong and the coolest chick I know. Here is what I made after a competition last weekend.

Lumberjack Kat

I used all Ellie Lash products on this page - Chocolate paper pack, Dotty Element made into an overlay from Coyote Kit, and the coolest new alpha, Alpha Dots! They are great and with a little outlinig from me they look just like logs!

I am working on a couple of new giveaways so I will be back later in the week with more stuff for everyone!

Nature Walk Freebie (Part 1)

I found another monthly color challenge at a site that I was not familiar with. It is My Scrap Shop Members Design a Kit Challenge.

The theme this month was Nature Walk and they had a beautiful color palette. I used a lot of greens and browns in my kit but they also had a beautiful blue color too so I ended up making 2 kits. Check back tommorow for that one, it will be part 2!

Here is Part 1. Hope you like it and if you like it please leave me a comment either her or on 4 shared! Thanks for looking!

To Stick or Not To Stick - You Decide! New Freebie!

Here is my latest freebie offering. I just finished my kit for the color challenge at Benevolent Boutique. I made 5 solid and 6 patterned papers. They have a high texture on them but I think I like it. I also made a bunch of elements and I couldn't decide if I wanted them to be plain or stickers so I made both! I decided to call this kit "To stick or not to stick - you decide!" It is a bit of a long title!

Here are the previews!


You can click on the links above the images or you can get them here:

And as usual, please leave me a comment and please let me know if you use this for anything, I would love to see my work in action! Thanks!

Nothing but White Freebie

So as I mentioned in my previous post I was scrapping away at the speed scrap over at Scrap Matters on Thursday night. These are great fun and a way to break out of a creative rut by challenging you to try something that you might not have thought of before. One of the first rules that we had to follow this week was we had to scrap on a white background. I thought that this would be easy but when I looked in me stash I realised that I didn't have any actual white papers. I have a lot of off white and a lot of cream but no actual white so I had to make a paper for my layout. Then I thought I would make a couple more and pop them in here for you all to add to your stash just in case you ever need a really quick white paper. Enjoy and leave me a note if you grab it. Thanks.

Grab it Here.

My Dream Gig!

This week I got the biggest thrill of my scrapping life when a little old designer called ELLIE LASH asked me to be on her new CT! Me Me Me! I could have peed myself I was so excited!I mean, yes, I have been stalking her like crazy and yes I did keep telling her that she should pick me if she ever needed anyone but honestly I never thought she would actually give me the chance to be on her team. I am so happy I could do a happy dance! So thank you Ellie for this chance!

Here is my first official page with Ellie's new kit - These Crazy Days. You can pick it up over at Scrap Orchard.

Also, I was over at Scrap Matters at the speed scrap last night. Those things are so much fun. Last night I made one of my favorite pages ever. It turned out great. And it also inspired me to do a bit of creating so I am going to be making a bit of a treat in the next couple of days! Keep on the lookout. Here is the page that I made last night. Also with Ellie's things, parts of her new kit Dulcet, stitching from Sweetness and a few parts from These Crazy Days.

Who wants a Freebie - Orange Polka Dot Alpha

Hi there everyone (that is if anyone actually checks this out!) I am in the process of revamping my blog so bear with me. Considering I have only blogged twice in 6 months and I think the only person that has ever read it was my sister, I am not sure if revamped is the right word. Maybe I am re-opening! Like a big party! Yeah, that is what I am doing. I am having a blog reopening and you are all invited. And what would a party be if there were no party favours so here we go...

An Orange Polka Dot Alpha I made for a layout that I was working on yesterday. It is from the font Pea Kylie by They have the best fonts ever! The orange polka dots were inspired by a freebie on the weeds and wildflowers blog so if want to see where that inspiration came from check them out too!

So here it is you can find it here or you can click on the image too and it will take you to get the alpha! Please leave me a comment somewhere so I can see if anyone really actually likes it and wants it! I might even do more if you really do! Thanks for looking!

My new header

This is my new header - I made it with Alphas from DoodlesNDimples Designs and papers and elements from Sueli Colbert. I love it.
